Here at Ronald McDonald House Charities Eastern Wisconsin, Volunteer Appreciation week is every week, but this week we want to give a special thanks to our volunteers for devoting their 35,000 hours of service each year, to make the House a Home. Our 550+ volunteers’ positive spirit is motivating and inspiring to others, leaving a lasting impression on the people and communities that they work and live in. Volunteers partake in countless duties during their shifts always going above and beyond to make a difference in one way or another. Our volunteers help keep our mission alive by providing transportation to and from the hospital, doing office work or light housekeeping duties, making quilts for the guest rooms, gardening in the Secret Garden, supporting special events, cleaning and maintaining our kitchens, providing meals for the families and a variety of other duties. Here at the Ronald McDonald House we want to encourage more people to make service an integral part of their lives; understanding that our organization would not be possible without our valued volunteers.
To the volunteers all over the world: thank you for your service! For the people that would one day like to participate in this movement, there are countless volunteering opportunities available. We appreciate you for all you do! Here seven tips that make exceptional volunteers:
7 Tips That Make an Exceptional Volunteer:
I was very grateful when I received the good news that I was chosen as the marketing intern at Ronald McDonald House Charities Eastern Wisconsin,. This opportunity was very important to me because I was impressed by the building, what the organization stood for: trust, integrity, compassion and loyalty which I believe are all core values that make an exceptional organization. With these core values in place I will have the ability to maximize my skills, knowledge and develop leadership experience, along with passionate professionalism which will take me far into my future career endeavors. As a student at Mount Mary University I’m look forward to gaining experience that will keep me on the right track for success.
